BLURB This Changes My Family and My Life Forever, Vol. II, The Spanners Series by Sally Ember, Ed.D.
How would YOU do with the changes after Public Contact is revealed? How does Dr. Clara Branon develop into the person selected by the Many Worlds Collective to be Earth's first Liaison late in 2012? This Changes My Family and My Life Forever contains a few of the younger Earthers' stories of the first five years After Public Contact with the Many Worlds Collective (2013-2018) interspersed with "Snapshots" from Clara's earlier and current life and the first Chief of the Psi-Warriors' experiences. Clara relates stories from more than one timeline of the multiverse in which we all reside but which few can know through timulting the way Clara can. Stories from "The Transition" to full membership for Earth. with its varied reactions, struggles and circumstances, are offered in TCMF&MLF from the points of view of Zephyr Branon, Dr. Clara Branon's adult son, Clara's nieces and nephews and their children. One of Clara's nephews, Moran Ackerman, becomes Chief of the Psi-Warriors and all species who train to become Earth's OverSeers. In his "Interludes," Moran shares experiences of the specialized psi training and some anecdotes from The Transition from his unique rabbinical and humorous perspectives. Esperanza Enlaces, Clara's Chief Media Contact, a contemporary of Clara's son, edits, curates and partially narrates TCMF&MLF, allowing more of the on-again/off-again romances between Clara and Epifanio Dang and others to unfold in several timelines. Clara's grand-nephews and nieces also make appearances; a few continue to be featured due to their extraordinary psi talents in Volumes IV, VII and VIII of The Spanners Series by Sally Ember, Ed.D.

Earth's first five years of The Transition in the Many Worlds Collective by teen and young/new adult Earthers related to Clara Branon, Chief Communicator/liaison, Clara's early life, and the ongoing love story between her and Epifanio Dang.

Dr. Clara Branon, liaison between Earth and the Many Worlds Collective, and others tell about The Transition.
Volume II of "The Spanners Series" is narrated by the "younger" Earthers (ages 12 - 40) in Clara's family and circle as well as her on-again/off-again love, Epifanio Dang, and her Chief Media Contact, Esperanza (Espe) Enlaces. It focuses on the first five years of The Transition after Public Contact is revealed to all Earther.

TCMF&MLF is divided into three types of narrations: Clara Branon provides "Snapshots" of her life, starting at age 9 and continuing through her sixties (2018), so readers may get to know her and discover the reasons she was selected to be Earth's first liaison, or Chief Communicator, by the Many Worlds Collective late in 2012. Moran Ackerman, one of Clara's nephews, provides "Interludes" to share his personal, family and professional experiences while discovering his own psi talents and how they are cultivated during his Excellent Skills Program trainings. Moran becomes the Chief of the Psi-Warriors and OverSeers, helping to defeat the Psi-Defiers who arise from the Fragmenters and Trenchers who protest Earth's joining the Many Worlds Collective. Each of Clara's nephews and nieces as well as her son, Zephyr, also shares their points of view while being interviewed by Espe about Earth's Transition into membership in the Many Worlds Collective.

Timulting, re-sets, Sequestering, and many other Spanners Series' unique specialties appear frequently as the stories overlap across multiple timelines and many years.
